There’s no better way to welcome back a guy whose season was cut short by injury than to put him on a national award watch list. The lucky Minnesota player? Offensive lineman Jared Weyler, who has been named to the Rimington Trophy watch list.
Too many awards out there to keep track of who the Rimington honors? No worries, you’re not alone. The Rimington Trophy is given every season to the best center in all of college football. The only Gopher to win the award previously? Greg Eslinger, in 2005.
Obviously it’s still really early to be worrying about awards, but as the offseason drags along I am excited to be excited for Jared receiving this honor.
